TRAVERSE CITY, Mich. (AP) - A developer plans to spend about $2.3 million to clean up one of the last industrial sites in the downtown Traverse City area.

The Traverse City Record-Eagle reports (https://bit.ly/1KaapRc ) Patti Mercer of the Mercer Group TC LLC proposes to redevelop three properties in the city’s Warehouse District. The $35.5 million project is planned to include retail and luxury apartments.

Mercer is presenting her plan to remove more than 20,000 tons of contaminated soil and treat almost 59 million gallons of contaminated groundwater to the Grand Traverse County Brownfield Redevelopment Authority.

Jean Derenzy, brownfield redevelopment director, says board members will take a close look at the proposed work because of the land’s proximity to West Bay. Brownfield officials eventually would plan to reimburse the developer for cleaning up the site.
